Join us on January 1st for our 28 Day Meditation Challenge, “Sit : Breathe : Love”

sit : breathe : loveFrom January 1 to January 28, as part of our Year of Going Deeper, we’re running a meditation challenge.

This 28 Day Meditation Challenge, called Sit : Breathe : Love, has the aim of helping you to set up the habit of meditating daily.

The benefits of regular meditation have been demonstrated again and again in multiple studies. Meditating makes you happier, is good for your health, protects your brain from aging, boosts your intelligence, and helps reduce pain, stress, and depression.

But it’s not easy to set up a regular meditation practice.

So we’re here to help you!

The Aim

The aims in the 28 Day Challenge are:

  1. To work toward building up a daily habit of meditation
  2. If possible, to sit every day for 28 days

How the Challenge Works

We set the bar for success low; although we hope you’ll meditate for 20 to 40 minutes a day, a “successful” day is one in which you’ve done some form of sitting meditation for at least five minutes — because there are Days Like That, aren’t there?

In the 28 Day Challenge we’ll teach you how to find a comfortable meditation posture (“Sit”); we’ll teach you how to calm your mind and settle agitated emotions by practicing the mindfulness of breathing (“Breathe”); and we’ll teach you how to appreciate yourself and others more through the practice of lovingkindness (“Love”). Hence, Sit : Breathe : Love”. We’ll also teach you walking meditation.

You’ll receive an email every day containing meditation instructions. We’ll also send you links to guided meditations.

There is also an online community where you can share your experiences and receive support and encouragement from other participants in the challenge. If you already have a Google account, then joining the Community is easy. Even if you don’t have a Google account, it’s simple to set one up. We’ll send you a link to the community once you register.

Donate!

The challenge is free, although we do appreciate donations. In fact, we need donations to cover our running costs. Please make a donation right now using the Paypal button below.
